Begin study:


The word for pate, ‘qodqod,’ means the crown of the head, or the top of the head. And in essence this verse states that all that the wicked person does, will fall right back on top of himself.

Understand that God created the universe and our world to be inhabited, and specifically to be inhabited by believers.

Satan came along and stole the world from Adam, and from humanity through Adam.

Unbelievers by default follow the same pattern of Satan’s actions in that they seek to have that which was never designed for them. Their inheritance is the Lake of Fire.

Nonetheless, unbelievers in all that they do, are in effect, taking that which does not belong to them. Likewise, all that they do is destined for destruction. They have to destroy believers in order to take what they want, from believers who have rightful ownership. As we get deeper into the book of Isaiah, that principle will become more apparent.

Unfortunately for unbelievers, all that they do, in opposition to believers and Gods plan, will come right back on themselves, and they in effect destroy themselves, rather than their intended victims. They become the victim of their own actions.

As for believers who are negative toward their spiritual life, they too, imitate unbelievers in that they live in a carnal sphere rather than in their spiritual sphere, and thus are attempting to take that which is intended for mature believers.

They too, will lose out, not on salvation, but on the additional eternal rewards that could have been theirs, but will be forfeit, due to their indifference and failure in advancing in their spiritual life.

Eternity is a long time, and to lose out on something forever, means a loss of infinite proportions.

Any energy of the flesh activity gains nothing. Only spiritual activity becomes efficacious for the individual.

And all spiritual activity must be done while in fellowship, in order to be classified for spiritual production.



End of study





Study [by instruction],

to show thyself approved [spiritually mature]

unto God,

a workman [student]

that need not be ashamed [ignorant],

rightly dividing [learning, understanding, discerning]

the word of truth [Bible doctrine].

If you can dream and not make dreams your master,

If you can think and not let thoughts narrow your views,

If you can meet triumph with disaster equally,

If you can learn and see your full meaning and purpose in life,

Then you can believe in Christ, learn Bible doctrine, and grow far beyond the potential that God has prepared for you.

These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.

And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.

To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.

The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.

But each person has to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.

Keep in the Word, Isa. 41:10.
